problems in four year stretches. i think barack obama can proudly say look at what we accomplished these are the issues. we are on the cusp of making real progress in the next term. >> you talked about the big problem that we had a few years ago in the banking industry. i want to take you back to your previous life as attorney general of the new york. you know the story with torn general snyderman with j.p. morgan. what do you think about that case? >> eric deserves credit for bringing the case. he made the overarching argument that there was structural fraud going on at bear stearns then acquired we morgan chase. the case is a rehashing of allegations from other cases over time. my food is ok, so be it, but he has pulled it together into a more coherentar particular let format. made the case the federal government should have made many years back, the federal government was queasy, unwilling to do it. eric deserves credit for the fortitude of trying to say to the public we will hold them accountable individually and institutionally for the wrong that did enormous harm to our socie
camp call the obama hug. i've been boot camping for five years. >> >> jennifer: when they greet each other? >> rhetorically speaking, he always hugs his opponent. he always says something nice. when jon huntsman got into the race for president obama said he was a great advocate for the country as an ambassador for china. we're really not so different. abraham lincoln who campaigned on don't change horses in the middle of the stream. obama is saying we're both going in the same direction. partisans hate it. but independents love it and that's why his support went up among independents. that's why people still believe that obama leads in the category of who cares about the problems that people like me -- that's why the medicaid moms are going to trust barack obama. >> jennifer: let me play you quickly a sound byte from that -- democrats passing obama care. take a quick listen. >> romney: instead of bringing america together and having a discussion on this important topic, you pushed through something that you and
it or not the first time they've seen barack obama in four years and the first time they've seen mitt romney. >> we watch this stuff all the time. >> bill: that debate was not for us. it was for the undecideds. >> not to say -- for example, my wife is not an undecided voter but she doesn't follow this stuff as closely as we did so we sat down to watch it together and 30 minutes in, she looks at me and she's not a very political person and she looks at me, what is he doing? he's not winning this debate. he's not coming off very well. and so you know, it is not just something that we're in a bubble and we follow this all the time. he really didn't do a good job. >> bill: no. i think people were waiting for him. they would hear romney say something and they were waiting for him -- again i keep coming back to that -- >> i'm still waiting for it. >> bill: i keep coming back to the $716 billion. it drove me freakin' crazy! because i know that it's phoney-baloney. it's been called phoney-baloney by politifact and "the washington po
a listen to a small part of what he said. >> obama: the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. [ cheers & applause ] >> obama: governor romney may dance around his positions but if you want to be president you owe the american people the truth. >> jennifer: now arguably, he should have been talking like that on the stage last night or have gone after it but he didn't. so do you think that it's important for the president today to stoke the fires of his supporters after their dreams were doused last night? >> well, he almost has to but the problem, of course, is that it's such a contrast between yesterday and today that it almost exacerbates the problem or draws more attention to it. and of course, it's funny. he's talking about the romney who showed up to debate there because a lot of us who were watching the d
